White Christmas

Paper piercing, Frosty the Snowman, and White Christmas are the themes which led to my card.
At Creative Belli blog we were challenged to do some paper piercing. One of the underlying challenges at Creative Belli is for us to use our old and forgotton embellishments. Well, my whole paper piercing comes from a time gone by. I have templates and piercing tools from way back when. Once I dusted them off I had a lot of fun. Behind the snowman is a vellum panel. I used a frame template to pierce my paper.
The Fashionable Stamping challenge is white Christmas. Other than a few black items, everything on my card is done in white. The snowman was colored with white and black Pan Pastels. Noel was cut using a beautiful white on white paper. (hard to see on the scan, but pretty IRL)
Hels' Sunday Challenge at Ink on my Fingers had the challenge of snowmen. I used the Tim Holtz snowman die and grungepaper to cut out the snowman. He was colored using Pan Pastels and embellished with a few little buttons, a bow tie (from a recent holiday), and a little bit of well placed marker ink.
The base card is made from some white with black Club Scrap paper.
